In the space of 1 year Paje, a small village on the SE coast of Zanzibar has gone from this:
Yes, its the same piece of land; unbelievable isn't it? I don't know who is responsible for the clean-up, but I'm grateful to whoever you are! If this can be achieved in a poor village on an island off the coast of Africa, then why not everywhere!!!

OK, we've concentrated a lot on the reduce and recycle part, but what about the re-use? Here's a few good examples:
- Re-use any plastic pot with a lid to store screws, nails, coloured chalk or any bits and bobs;
- Fill empty plastic bottles with water, freeze and use as a cooler in your cooler box or picnic basket;
- Punch holes in the bottom of old yogurt pots to plant seeds or seedlings.
Get creative and see what else you can come up with!
